The Executive Director of the International Press Centre (IPC), Lanre Arogundade, has described ace journalist and Managing Editor The Nation Newspapers, Yusuf Alli as one of the birthday stories in the Journalism profession..
The IPC boss in his birthday message disclosed that the seasoned journalist’s ‘second nature is humility.’
” I have invited him to training workshops where he could easily be a lecturer or a trainer on account of his intellect and experience. But he never complains.He would participate enthusiastically and let whoever cares to listen know that everyone is a learner and no workshop is a waste of time. It is not surprising that Yusuf, whose second nature is humility, has made a steady rise on the professional ladder.
‘ Countless times, I have proudly referred to his professional impact as one of the success stories of the International Press Centre’s capacity building programmes for journalists over two decades. ” Arogundade said
